Antistatic Siegling Transilon belts are equipped with an electrically conductive static inhibitor that is abrasion-protected and embedded in the belt.
It effectively prevents static build-up from the running belt. Antistatic belts do not always guarantee discharge of previously statically-charged conveyed goods, e.g. in the nonwovens industry, when conveying plastic or electronic components. In these cases HC belts should be used, particularly when they have to be ESD safe.
In line with DIN-EN-ISO 284 thresholds, the electrical resistance measured on the inside (lengthways) RDi, according to ISO 21178, is less than 3 x 108 Ω.
